Executive Lead for Secondaries


Salary dependent on successful applicant’s experience and skills

To start from January 2024 (earlier if possible)


We are delighted to be appointing an Executive Leader to take strategic oversight of our secondary schools at this very exciting time for Mowbray Education Trust.  We are a family of schools dedicated to providing children with a first-class education. Based in Leicestershire and reaching far beyond, our settings support pupils throughout their education journey, providing them with the skills and knowledge to thrive and make a positive impact on society.  Mowbray Education Trust is a successful and growing multi-academy trust with 535 staff in total, 201 of whom are teachers, and just over 3300 pupils.

Our vision is to deliver first-class teaching and learning with integrity. This means that every young person attending our schools, regardless of background or ability, receives a first-class education. Our common values of integrity, collaboration and transparency underpin all that we do and ensure we hold one another accountable for delivering an outstanding education experience.

The Executive Lead for Secondaries will play a crucial role in developing our secondary phase, bringing leaders together as one new team within the culture of the Trust and will have accountability for the performance and success of the secondary schools. As a member of the Executive Team, you will play a key role in the strategic direction setting and oversight of the Trust and share responsibility for the performance and success of the Trust as a whole. 

Much of our most recent success, we attribute to identifying, attracting and retaining people with humility, warmth and the potential to be brilliant.  If you are an inspirational Headteacher with an ability to motivate others to develop a culture of high expectations and are interested in taking a key role, not only in our Trust, but in shaping the future of education, we can’t wait to hear from you.
